Arty Farty class

I was asked by a fellow demonstrator if I would conduct an Arty Farty class at her place. I love sharing special techniques and showing just how easy they are, even though they look so complicated.

The cards we made started out as a sheet of A4 Very Vanilla that went through layers of sponging, masking, stamping and finally stamping with bleach.

We then cut up the sheet to make the decorated layer of a Tri Shutter card. Everyone used 3 different colours of ink so each one was so different and absolutely gorgeous. Once they were in strips they took on a different look again. All the ladies were thrilled with this step.

The Tri shutter base was Natural White and went beautifully with all the colours. We decorated the front using Faux silk flowers (we made by distressing and pulling apart several scallop circles), our clay flowers and an acetate butterfly coloured with the blendabilities.

Phew finally finished.

This was only the first card of the day. Yep get the tough one over first and then the rest are easy peasy. The second one was a 3x3 card we used the same technique, minus the masking and stamping layers. I wanted them to use the same inks and this time sponge very softly to show how the same colours can look so different.

The last one was using the remainder of the A4 sheet.

This was such a great day and I loved all the completely different colour combinations. I think all the ladies had a great time.
